For you

"Do you have doubts about life? Are you unsure if it is worth the trouble? Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing. Stand up and face the east. Now praise the sky and praise the light within each person under the sky. It's okay to be unsure. But praise, praise, praise."
—excerpt from No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July

  6. It's okay to be unsure.

    I keep telling myself.

    Heaven's forbid, but I used to live in circumstances where I did not know whether there would be another morning to come.
